On November 18th, HPMS 8th graders spent a day on the SUNY Poly campus. During the morning session, students visited about 15 different stations where they participated in STEM activities. SUNY Poly students guided the 8th graders in lessons on drones, robotics, electronics, RC vehicles, virtual reality, computer programming, and many more topics. After eating lunch in the campus student center, the 8th graders took a tour of the campus guided again by SUNY Poly students. Everyone enjoyed the day and learned a lot about all the opportunities available. Special thanks to Mrs.Tina Betz, the K-12 STEM Outreach Coordinator at SUNY Poly, and all of the college students who helped throughout the day.
On November 3, 2016, 30 outstanding 8th grade students were inducted into the Holland Patent Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society. The National Junior Honor Society recognizes students who excel in the categories of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character. Congratulations to all new members!
